Pick of the Week: Barefoot Hybrid Nature Mats

Samantha says, “My pick of the week is the new Barefoot Hybrid Nature Mats! They come in both the standard 1/8” mat or thicker 1/4″ mat. The same durability and eco-friendly aspects of our Hybrid Eco mats, these mats come in a new beautiful wash pattern with color variations.”

All of our signature Hybrid yoga mats combine the best of environmental and traditional mats. They’re free of phthalates, heavy metals and latex, and their durable recycled polyester mesh scrim means that the mats stand up wonderfully to heavy use. Our new Hybrid Nature Mats are available in nature-inspired color blends, which combine two tones to create a beautiful marbled look.

Barefoot in Boston: the Glamorous Life of a Yoga Mat (Barefoot Yoga Mat Review)

“Before Sandy, when Long Beach still had a boardwalk,  I received a purple yoga mat and lavender scented eye pillow from Barefoot Yoga.

The mat traveled with me to several different classes, visited studios in New York City and on Long Island. It survived post-Sandy construction. It was my Ashtanga,Vinyasa, and slow flow partner. Just when we were getting used to our newly re-finished floor (see picture), I rolled her up and took her to Boston.”

Hybrid Eco Yoga Mat and Silk Eye Pillow reviewed on My Empty Nest

Diana at My Empty Nest recently had a chance to try out a Barefoot Hybrid Eco Mat and a lavender scented Silk Eye Pillow, and reviewed them on her blog.

She wrote about our Hybrid Eco Mat, “When you step onto your beautiful new mat you will notice it feels great under your feet and the surface prevented me for having any slips. They come in a lovely array of colors to choose from and two thicknesses for your comfort.”

After she used our Silk Eye Pillow, she said, “The way the pillow contours to your eyes and scent that gently emanates relaxed me totally and completely. They come with slip covers in either solid colors, like mine, or sari designs.”

One happy customer said about our bags, “Have had my eye on this bag for a while with its material, quality and style in mind. I have a Manduka black mat, and it fits perfectly!! Would also be great for a smaller mat for additional room. Love the color (and the others offered are great too), and the pocket is a wonderful addition so that I can go into class with keys and not have to carry another bag.”

Natural Jute Yoga Mats – Perfect for Hot Yoga!

Our Natural Eco-Friendly Yoga Mat is made from Jute and PER (Polymer Environmental Resin). The natural jute fibers in this mat offer the strength of conventional mats, yet are biodegradable. This mat’s unique look and feel are created by meshing jute fibers with patented PER, which is phthalate-free and safer for workers during manufacturing. The result is a mat that looks distinctive and lets you feel better about your ecological footprint — yet doesn’t compromise on the grippy, cushiony texture you count on for your best yoga positions.

Our customers love them for all types of practice, but especially love to use them as hot yoga mats.

One reviewer says, “I love this yoga mat. You don’t get as much slippage, even in a heated yoga class. I would certainly purchase another of these mats when the time comes. Love the fact that it’s eco-friendly too.”

Another satisfied yogi says, “Excellent choice for a yoga mat. No toxic smells emanating from this mat and provides a secure hold to the floor during my Heated Power Yoga Class. Great price.”

Original Eco Yoga Mats – beautiful and eco-friendly!

Our Original Eco Yoga Mats are all back in stock, and people can’t stop talking about them! They are simply one of the best and most earth-conscious yoga mats available today. The Original Eco Mat is composed exclusively of all-natural rubber and jute fiber. There are no chemical additives used. It is excellent for any consistent practice of Yoga. Its rubber underside grips the floor while the jute fabric/rubber mix on top offers superb traction – even in a heavy sweat. It is a highly durable, tactile, and pleasantly natural surface to practice on — and might remind you of walking barefoot on the earth.

One reviewer raved:

“I am so happy that I found a yoga mat that is not only efficient but also extremely environment-friendly. This mat is pretty to look at, durable, and comfortable to work with. I would recommend it to any of my friends or family members interested in yoga.”

Another satisfied Original Eco Mat user said:

“I bought this mat after a lot of reasearch. This one was difficult to get as it is out of stock in most places. I finally got one, and its truly amazing. Its got a nice texture, not too soft and not too rough. And it has a very good grip. I placed it on the floor and found some poses difficult (i need a little more cushion as I am a newbie). I usually use 2 yoga mats in classes, so I placed this one on a thin carpet and it was perfect. Its rolls and unrolls easily and occupies very little space. its light enough to be carried out. Also, i got the green color and it looks amazing!”
